About Miriam "Marussia" Marsha Gerstein
Marussia Blumenthal Gerstein was the granddaughter of Yakov Zundel
Kamber of Raseinei who was the brother of my great-grandmother Rochel
The family tree of the Kamber family was put together by Yashe Kamber
1909-1997 of Kibbutz Bet Alfa. While I have made contact with many in
the family and checked details much of the information is from his
Her father Phillip BLUMENTHAL died in Ghetto Kovno and was buried in a
numbered grave in the cemetery.
The brother of Marrusia was Theodore (Teddy) BLUMENTHAL (1892-1981).
His wife Esther (Essia) SANDLER died of typhus in Stutthof in Feb
1945. Her nephew Alexander Karnovsky has provided me much information
about this family - his mother, who may still be alive, survived the
Kovno ghetto and Stutthof. Teddy's daughter in Switzerland, Rachel,
probably submitted the Page of Testimony.
